Taking Control Conference
18th October 2008
Clarion Hotel Liffey Valley Dublin
When trying to make sure that the voice of our most vulnerable people in Irish society are heard – what strikes me most is that a lot of people don’t need advocates they only need friends.
The single most important think I have learnt on this Journey with my son is it that it’s okay to dream and to have dreams about your child’s future and that these dreams do come true
When I dare to dream, I dream of can do and not for what he can’t doa time when people here in Ireland, especially our policymakers and service providers, will start to think outside the box and look at alternative ways of giving people with disabilities more control
over their funding and the type of support that they need. That people with disabilities will get to live the life they choose
What is the price of a dream not dreamed,
What is the price of a word, not spoke,
What is the price of voice, not heard.
What is the price of a vision, not imagined,
What is the price of a life, not lived.
I believe that dreams create vision, interested in music, sports and travel he especially loves football and cricket
Vision creates ambition and ambition creates reality
Go follow your dreams
